Can I see the IP protocols and TCP protocols based on the network and transport layer secure packets

I want to be able to see the actual security of the packets when they go from layer to layer in the OSI model. For instance I want to see the security of a packet when it goes from IP to TCP in wireshark. Can wireshark show this?

I do not understand the question, what do you mean by "security of the packets".

I mean can Wireshark show when there is a malicious attack being initiated against the packets? Can I see the protection frame against a threat issued in wireshark? Can you initiate threats in wireshark and see the packets respond by securing the packets and defending against the threat? What software would show this?

Wireshark has the option to show you the Security bit in the IPv4 header flags, as per RFC 3514, but I doubt that is what you seek.
